In my work I thrive when collaborating with colleagues on getting to solutions to complex problems. I gather different perspectives on the problem and always search for common grounds to come to a solution that is supported, and therefore more likely to be implemented. My colleagues value me for my ability to prioritize and focus, and translating concepts to concrete steps.

To have societal impact via my work is important to me. After 7 years of consulting in healthcare, I started at health insurer Cooperatie VGZ in the Netherlands in 2019, to be able to make a more direct and greater impact on healthcare in the Netherlands. I work at the corporate strategy office of VGZ. Working on the themes sustainability of healthcare, and health and prevention fueled up my passion for these topics. I love the challenge of translating these important themes to the strategy and execution of VGZ. I also translated this to being more active on these topics in my personal life.

I have a rich family life with my husband and three children. I love to sing in a pop choir and to be active outdoors, enjoying nature wherever I am.
